    Done it before, but having access to a plasma table at lunch has some benefits.

    Canned bbq? Didn't even know they made such a thing. Just makes me sick thinking about it.

    Got the sway bar arm straightened out, was a lot easier to do than I thought it was going to be. Just sandwiched it between the plates on the press and squeeze.

    I also got uber lazy and just welded a tab to the other tab. Not the prettiest thing but it'll work and should blend in after it gets covered in mud and dirt.

    I appreciate it, this stage is snow balling. Thinking of air shocks for the rear, need 17" beadlocks which means new tires, and I want to try a double triangulated rear 4 link and start a sub frame build.

    I enjoy building much more now that I've learned that lesson.

    Yes, yes it has. I started thinking of all the things I would do when I eventually LS swap it and I decided to postpone thinking about that. LS means alot of things I want to do but aren't necessary but would be better done at the same time.

    Yeah me too. I was thinking why swap out a perfectly good 4.0 that will run on its side and shrug off hydrolock like it's nothing. If I just get a little more gearing out of it (atlas) and some minor suspension and steering upgrades it'll be more capable than I will be. Probably. ;)
